The competition was hard with David George a former Commonwealth Games and Under 23 World Championships bronze medallist and James Perry who also won a bronze medal in the Under 23 World’s before as well as Jay Thomson the current African Time Trial Champion at the start.
“Ag, it was one of those days where nothing went wrong. The new bike was great. I tried to pace myself properly and started maybe too fast because I suffered a little in the middle. But then I blitzed the last five kays.”
